I bought some gorgeous blueberries at the Farmer's Market and decided to make up a batch of Blueberry Cheesecake Protein Ice Cream.
Blueberries have soooo many health benefits including the highest antioxidant level of any fruit. The FDA or USDA (one of those acronyms) put out a report that said blueberries may also have anti-aging properties. Apparently little mice fed blueberries for a period of time were sharper at mice tasks than blueberry-less mice. <:3 )~~
Looks like I got your fountain of yoot right here, baby.
Shelly's Blueberry Cheesecake Protein Ice Cream
1 cup Vanilla Soy Milk (or Regular Milk)
2 scoops Vanilla Protein Powder
1 Tablespoon SF Jello Pudding Mix, dry (SF Cheesecake flavor)
1 Tablespoon Cream Cheese
2 Tablespoons Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used SF Vanilla), divided use
1 Tablespoon Water
1 cup fresh Blueberries (yields 1/2 cup of blueberry goo after cooking)
Mix blueberries, water and 1 Tablespoon of the syrup. Heat until blueberries begin to burst about 3-4 minutes. Set aside to cool. I pop it in the freezer while the ice cream churns.
Mix together milk, protein, 1 Tablespoon syrup, pudding mix, and cream cheese. I used this gadget to mix it up. It makes it airy and lump free. Pour into ice cream maker. Follow your machine's instructions for freezing. 5 minutes before done add the blueberry goo. You can eat it right away it is soft serve-ish but I like to put it in the freezer (in a Tupperware) to set for an hour or so.
July is National Blueberry Month. 11 more days to celebrate.

Highlights of the Day:
* Today was waaaaay cooler than they said it was going to be.
* Bringing dinner to the little lake near my house later. Mmmm a killer new bean salad I'll post the recipe and porn manana.
* Replaced the spark plug in my broken mower and it worked. Great huh? Well this would have been a highlight but then it reminded me I'm single.
